Day 23 - "A picture of your favorite book"
This is kind of tough for me. I really enjoy reading, but with 2 kids, a home to take care of, and essentially 2 full time jobs, it's hard to find the time. The last book I completed, though, was AWESOME. It was "Under The Dome" by Stephen King and it was well over 1000 pages. I read it (mostly) before bed each night. I really love the way King develops characters and brings them to life. Character-driven stories are what I like the most, and I tend to like "modern" books more than the classics. Although, truthfully, I should give some of the classics another go as I tried to read them in my early 20s. I have grown to understand that over time, my tastes have changed quite a lot!
When I first moved to the midwest to be with my (now) husband, who is an avid Stephen King fan, "Well, I liked Misery ok, but I'm not really a huge Stephen King fan." And so, he set out to prove me wrong about that and had me read Desperation. My take on Stephen King changed after that.
Aron and I like to read books "together" - he'll read a copy and I'll read a different copy at the same time and we discuss it while we're reading it. It's great fun and always makes me enjoy a book even more.
The book I'm reading currently is I Am Ozzy - the autobiography of Ozzy Osbourne. Aron picked it up from the library and read it in a few days and recommended that I read it as well. I'm SO glad that I am. It's wildly entertaining and touching at the same time. I am really enjoying it - and I'm almost done with it.
I like to think that we're fostering a love of reading and books in our children. We read bedtime stories each night to them. Len, who is 2 currently prefers a good "I Spy" book. Lil, who is 6, has been CRAZY for the Junie B. Jones books, so we've been reading a few chapters of Junie each night too.
Still to come....because I know you're on the edge of your seat with anticipation:
